科羅拉多“金秋三角”賞白楊(三)~~Telluride和Ridgway間CO-62公路旁鄉間小道(2014.10.05)

 

我們今天計畫走訪三條County Route,途中會經過一個昨天下午路過已停留過的觀景點:
() Last Dollar Rd/T60 Rd
() Dallas Divide Summit
() West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)
() Dallas Creek Road(County Route 7)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
這三條County Route和Dallas Divide Summit觀景點相關里程如下(為方便計,里程計算是離開Telluride約16哩右轉接CO-62公路開始計算):
() Last Dollar Rd/T60 Rd從CO-62與CO-145岔路往Ridgway東北行,11.2哩右轉Last Dollar Rd。
() Dallas Divide從Last Dollar Rd路口續行1.4哩抵達Dallas Divide,路旁為一牧場,再續行1哩路右有一較大停車空間,展望不錯。
() West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)Dallas Divide第二個停車點續行3.5哩抵達路右West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)
() Dallas Creek Road(County Route 7)West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)續行1.4哩抵達路右Dallas Creek Road(County Route 7)
 
若是由Ridgway沿CO-62西行其里程如下:
(一) 從Ridgway US-550和CO-62岔路口沿CO-62西行4.8哩抵路左Dallas Creek Road(County Route 7)
() Dallas Creek Road路口沿CO-62續行1.4哩抵達路左West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)
() West Dallas Creek Road路口沿CO-62續行3.5哩抵路左大停車場觀景點;從大停車場觀景點續往上西行1哩抵Dallas Divide。
(四) 從Dallas Divide續行1.4哩抵路左Last Dollar Rd。
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
() Last Dollar Rd/T60 Rd
Last Dollar Rd全長約11.4哩,北從CO-62公路起,南下接CO-145公路往Telluride,本來我們是可從CO-145公路右轉Last Dollar Rd一路北上再接CO-62公路的,但網路記錄該道路南邊路段路況不佳,為安全計改走北段就好。
該道路叉路是在CO-62公路距CO-145公路11.2哩右側,路口有一紅色路牌,右轉Last Dollar Rd後就是一個大景,沿途景觀都不錯,路況也還好,前半段一般車輛行駛無礙。

車行1.3哩抵達Last Dollar Ranch,此農場大門比一般農場來得堅實宏偉,加上在遠方Dallas Peak、Mt. Sneffels等積雪高山及丘陵上青、黃夾雜的白楊木襯托下,場景蠻壯觀的。

車行2.5哩抵另一農場,抵農場前一兩百公尺處有一草皮斜坡,蠻佳的取景、休息地點。

車行5哩遇岔路,右岔為58P Road通往Sawpit,左岔續行為Last Dollar Rd,但後半段路況據說較差,所以我們沒再前行,在此折返(時間許可的話可再前行,較逼近白楊木林及高山)

() Dallas Divide Summit
從Last Dollar Rd回到CO-62路口右轉續行1.4哩即抵達Dallas Divide Summit,此處海拔8,970呎(2,734公尺),路右為一牧場,悠閒的牛群、金黃的白楊木,在遠方積雪山頭襯托下,構成一幅悠閒的田園景象。

從Dallas Divide Summit往東續行約一哩路右有一大停車場,也是不錯的取景場所。

() West Dallas Creek Road(County Route 9)
從大停車場續東行3.5哩即抵West Dallas Creek Road岔路在右側,一轉進West Dallas Creek Road即經過Double RL Ranch的大門,此條County Route較窄,路況感覺也較差,行了兩三哩後便折返,不想太晚抵旅館。

此條County Route不算難走,沿途許多可取景之處隨時可停車拍照,3.5哩抵路左一無名小潭,要拍山頭倒影不太容易。

車行至約7哩左右有絕佳的展望,Mt. Sneffels 矗立在East Fork Dallas Creek河谷尾端,悠靜的河谷在兩側斜條帶狀的金黃白楊及雪白山頭烘托下構成一幅筆墨無法描述的美圖;

車行至7.3哩處抵達“Uncompahgre National Forest”界牌,眼看已逼近山腳乃決定循原路折返,結束今天的旅遊。

回到CO-62後右轉經RidgwayUS-550南下,今晚我們住宿在小鎮Ouray,住宿旅館為“Ouray Chalet Inn”,跟去年遊此鎮時住同一家旅館,價位和設備還可接受。
